Kentucky’s Soaring Employment Continues

Kentucky Employment

Kentucky’s employment continues to rise rapidly under the leadership of Gov. Matt Bevin.

The accompanying chart does the talking. Contrast the declining employment in the state of Kentucky during the last year of Democratic Governor Steven Beshear against the rapid growth in employment during the first few months of Gov. Matt Bevin.

    Now that’s a bad statistics tic if there ever was one. Employment hass a lag effect, meaning today’s government policy decisions show up in the economy 6 months to two years later. Surely, nothing that a governor could possibly do would materially impact unemployment in the first few months of his time in office.
